The International Institute of Technology offers courses that are ideal for students of all ages and backgrounds.
We offer a specialised range of programs from Certificate IV to Advanced Diploma level that are suitable for the entry-level adviser or recent graduate as well as the financial service professional wanting a career pathway to the next level.
Upon completion of a FNS50615 Diploma of Financial Planning qualification IIT graduates can apply to be accepted into the AMP Advisor Academy program which effectively is a “boot camp” training program for new advisors.
This program gives advisors the opportunity to be trained by Financial Planning professionals so that they can have “real world” experience in advising clients, selling products and learning the skills required to be effective communicators and advisors in the finance industry. To be eligible for the Advisor Academy program you need complete your RG146 via our FNS50615 Diploma of Financial Planning qualification. Many of our students have graduated from our Diploma of Financial Planning program and been successfully accepted into the Advisor Academy Program.
Testimonial from one of our students-
|ERIN SANDERSON||I am writing to say thank you! I completed my Dip. FS in November 2009 in Melbourne with IIT. I had recently finished my bachelors degree and wanted become a financial planner. I have just been accepted into AMP’s Horizons program for new planners and I am over the moon! Competition for places in this program is fierce and as an at-home mum who has been out of the workforce for the past 6 years I feel that my success is a credit to the focused, effective education that I received from IIT. I feel that working with the facilitator in the workshop program in particular gave me the opportunity to learn more about the industry than merely the contents of the RG146 qualification. Thank you for such a great head start.|
